Hello All,

I joined the zaurus commuity by purchasing my very own model 6000. Very impressive piece of electronics. The display is absolutely awesome.

I have loaded it with qkonsole and keypebble vnc viewer. I have the Targus keyboard which also works fine, thanks to IRK.

I have been struggling with vnc to my windows xp box. The connection works fine, I get to the system locked window on xp. How does one send ctl-alt-del to the windows box to get the user name and pw dialog (login screen)?

many thanks

Have you tried using the onscreen keyboard to enter Ctrl + Alt + Del? I think I has at least Ctrl and Alt...

Yes, I tried this. The ctrl and alt are sticky, meaning they stay highligted when pressed. The sequence of pressing ctrl then alt then del on the onscreen keyboard should work, but doesn't.

I thought this could be the same mechanism as the unix version of vncviewer has. There, you have to press F8, which brings up a dialog with one of the choices being to send ctl-alt-del to the server.

In the version I have (Opie-Keypebble 1.0.1) there is a little button with an arrow pointing at an angle in the lower right corner of the screen that brings up a menu. Among them is the ctrl-alt-del and right click options.

I have keypebble 0.9 installed and it does not have the ctl-alt-del option as part of the menu.

Version 1.0.1 would not install for me (the package would not appear in the package manager). I am using the Sharp ROM. This is probably the problem.

OK, off I go to google for Opie-Keypebble 1.0.1 that the Sharp ROM package installer can see.

Thanks

Keypebble is no longer in the Zaurus ROM version of the opie 1.0.3 feed. I found version 1.0.0 but it also lacks the send-F8 menu option. Anyone have a link for keypebble version > 1.0.0 compiled for the Sharp ROM?

There is an Opie version of keypebble available from this web site in the feed section off to the left side of the screen on the home page. This version works on my Sharp ROM on the Zaurus SL-C760. I do not know if it will be any better in letting you send Ctrl Alt Del to the Windows VNC server, though. I have never had to do that. I wrote about this version of keypebble elsewhere in the forums.

Solved..

Keypebble version 1.0.0 does indeed have the send ctl-alt-del option. It only shows up after a connection to a windows box is made.
